Maulvi issues fatwa, offers Rs 10 Lakh for shaving Sonu Nigam's head

Surely Sonu Nigam’s tweet regarding Azaan made everyone angry, people started criticizing him on social media; be it celebrities, press or Muslims. But here is a new twist to the whole controversy, a senior member of a minority council issued a fatwa against the Sonu Nigam.

Syed Sha Atef Ali Al Quaderi, Vice president West Bengal Minority United Council was quoted in the report saying: “If anyone can shave his hair, put a garland of old torn shoes around his neck and tour him around the country I personally announce an award of Rs 10 lakh for that person.

At a press conference that was held by the Maulvi, he said that no one has the right to hurt the religious sentiments of people. He said, “I would have reacted the same way if one had talked ill about the sound of bells coming from a temple as well. If we all become so intolerant about each other’s religions, we will soon have a bunch of atheists in our country. People like Nigam should be driven out of the country.”

Talking about the rally that he is planning against Sonu Nigam, he said: “It is a rally to send a message across to people like Nigam and RSS leaders who had recently put up a public meeting at the same place to insult our prophet. The rally will be attended by people across all faiths.”

Sabir Ali, General Secretary of the council too criticised Sonu Nigam and called the tweets a publicity stunt.

In return to moulvi’s statements, Sonu Nigam has accepted the challenge and this is how he responded:

Looks like Sonu Nigam is not at all sorry for his stupid statements!
